Barbara Cain


When Barbara was a young girl, her mother taught her how to sew clothing. After Barbara understood garment making, her interests quickly turned to home goods. She began making kitchen linens, decorative pillows, bedding, and, most importantly, quilts! Barbara had an undying interest in all things textile, which inspired her to pursue an education in interior design. This was followed by a long career as a partner of an architectural firm where she honed her design skills.

Due to the demands of her occupation, quilting had been a luxury hobby in Barbara’s limited free time. She recognized her need to continue making quilts, but without the huge time commitment that many quilts take. This need resulted in her developing Big Bold Modern Quilts, where Barbara shares her expertise in creating large scale, sizable quilts with rewarding speed.
